A makeup artist, Kika (Veronica Forque), is hired by a homicidal but attractive expatriate American writer Nicholas (Peter Coyote) to do the makeup on his stepson, Ramon (Àlex Casanovas). As she's doing her job, Ramon is revived..
She moves in with him but has an affair with Nicolas. Meanwhile, she has to deal with the suspicious death of Ramon's mother and the intrusive gaze of tabloid-TV star and Ramon's ex-psychologist Andrea Scarface; a vampish, oddball television reporter who’s constantly on the lookout for ‘reality’ scoops and who wears a strange uniform with a revolving video camera mounted to her head; and a bedraggled maid and her criminal brother.
Screenplay: Pedro Almodóvar
